Exclusive Red Carpet Interviews – FUTURAMA – Bender’s Big Score
Posted by Frosty
A little over a week ago I got to interview the people responsible for bringing “Futurama” to life. The event where the interviews took place was on the red carpet at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood, where the premiere of “Bender’s Big Score,” the first of four straight to DVD “Futurama” movies, was being held. So before the movie began I interviewed most of the voice cast along with David H. Cohen – the head writer and one of the executive producers. But rather than posting all six interviews in one article, I’ve divided it up into three parts.
So posted below is David X. Cohen and Billy West – the head writer and the voice of Fry and a few other characters. If you’d like to watch David Herman and Tress MacNeille click here, and for Phil LaMarr and Maurice LaMarche click here.
Finally, I want to give a big thank you to the cast of the show for doing the interviews, along with another thanks to Fox for bringing back a great show. I got to watch the movie after doing the interviews and I thought it was quite funny and definitely worth watching. And for those who don’t know, “Bender’s Big Score” hits retail stores this Tuesday.
Anyway, here are some of the video interviews. Hope you enjoy them.
